Pre-owned Omega 41mm Geneve Dynamic, Black/Grey Dial, stainless Ref 165.039

The Omega Genève Dynamic watches were released to the public in 1968, with the later versions switching from Geneve Dynamic to Deville Dynamics.  Watches were named Dynamic to emphasize their unusual shape, which was specifically designed to emphasize comfort.  The case is clearly elliptical to sit comfortably on the wrist, while the dial is a more traditional round shape for ease in reading the time.  The Dynamics featured many different dial designs, as well as movements.  Perhaps the most popular is the dial on the watch shown here, the black and grey tuxedo version, which is nicely offset with the reddish-orange seconds hand.  The caseback on this watch includes the correct etching “Tool 107 Waterproof”, which is also curved.  The integrated stainless steel bracelet and Omega signed crown both appear to be original.  The case still shows the unusual (and correct) sunburst brushing on the top and the straight lined brushing on the sides of the case, although worn.  The dial has what appears to be the original lume and is in very good condition, as well as attractive.  There are two small dimples that appear between the 4 and 5 o’clock position, as well as between 11 and 12 o’clock, with the one that is at the top of the dial that appears to have a crease.  An unusual vintage dial, it is safe to say that this watch is still Dynamic.

Description

Omega is one of the world’s most recognizable luxury watch brands.  Although founded in 1848, the company did not become known as Omega until 1894, when the company took the name of its highly successful new watch movement.  The revolutionary movement used a single crown for both winding and time setting.  Success followed success when in 1905, due to its commitment to accuracy, Omega became the official timekeeper for Swiss sporting events.  Later in 1932, Omega became the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games.  To mark Omega’s 100th year anniversary, Omega introduced the watch that would become one of the world’s most popular watches, the Seamaster.  While these are remarkable achievements, the watch that made Omega a legend among watchmakers was the Speedmaster, the only watch to survive the brutal NASA testing requirements and the only watch certified by NASA for use in Space.  It is no surprise that Omega watches are recognized today as spectacularly rugged tool watches hiding in a luxury watch.
